Your career is our priority

EDHEC’s Global MBA is ranked #7 in the world, #2 in Europe and #1 in France by the Economist for opening new career opportunities. You’ll be working on every aspect of career development, defining your future with the help of two intensive CareerSMART weeks and personal career coaching throughout.

CareerSMART®

The CareerSMART programme

Year after year, EDHEC Global MBA students are consistently satisfied with the return on their investment. This is partly thanks to the CareerSMART programme which applies proven methods and a highly individual process to prepare students for their future. 

Your ideas, interests and competencies will evolve as your knowledge and experience grow, so we make sure that you’re supported the entire length of the programme. The first intensive CareerSMART week allows you to identify skills and interests, while the second week, later in the programme, gives you the chance to kickstart your future taking into account everything that you’ve learned during your Global MBA.

Through individual career coaching sessions and group-based assessments, participants hone in on what their strengths, weaknesses, and goals are within their professional careers.
EDHEC Global MBA Career Services work closely with participants to help them decide on a post-graduation projectory, and what strategy they must implement in order to achieve it.
Participants gather up-to-date intel about the current job market they are most interested in and learn how to conduct an efficient job search, leveraging different online tools.
Career Services assist participants in actively networking with other companies and MBA alumni, then follow up with them to make sure any opportunity leads to a meaningful professional situation.
Students participate in job fairs, meet with partner firms, and when they do apply for a job, Career Services guide them through updating their CVs, filling out application forms, and preparing for interviews.

“We help students to understand and believe that they’re not just generic products. When they can identify what they’re good at, what’s special about them and which sector they can add value to, they can start making an impact.”

Spencer Hamilton,
Global MBA Head of Careers and Corporate Services
